Subject: [*] [Disk Watcher 1.0.3] Automatically check disks for corruption

"Disk Watcher" fully automates Disk First Aid to check your disks for
corruption. Results are logged. What action to (automatically) take
when a disk problem is found is 100% customizable!

The idea is "damage prevention" - disk errors can go unnoticed,
resulting in even more errors until finally things go really wrong.
Checking your disks on a regular basis is just good "disk-keeping".
Disk Watcher automates that for you.

Use:
The Disk Watcher installer will put everything in place. It gives you
the option to have Disk Watcher launched on every startup, or just once
per day at startup. Alternatively you can have a cron launch it at
whatever interval you deem appropriate.

- Disk Watcher allows you to exempt disks from being checked based on
the kind of disk (locked, ejectable) and/or based on the disk's name.
- Disk Watcher allows you to have your own custom actions take place
(which can even overrule Disk Watcher's default action) when a disk
problem is found. Such an action might be to automatically launch
another disk repair utility, but may also be to launch your own home
grown scripts... Powerful stuff!

System Requirements:
- Works under Mac OS 7.5 through 9.2.1
- Disk First Aid 8.2 or higher
- AppleScript needs to be enabled

History:
- 1.0.3 - Fixed a problem with large, full disks
- 1.0.2 - Fixed a few small bugs and included latest version of "The Dailies"
- 1.0.1 - First public release

Pricing and payment:
Disk Watcher is $10,- non-crippled shareware with a free 30-day trial period.
Payment is handled by Kagi.

Subject: [*] Baker 1.1.0 - Newsgroup Utility for OS X

Baker 1.1.0
http://www.eridanus.com/products/baker/
[email protected]
Requires OS X
May be included in archive CD

Eridanus has released Baker 1.1. Baker is an OS X utility used to
simplify the task of downloading files from Usenet newsgroups.

New in this release is the Persistent Article Queues. Baker documents
now remember all the articles you have selected in all the newsgroups
and on all the news servers you access. This lets you build queues for
as many newsgroups as you like without having to worry about losing all
your hard work because of something that disrupts your downloading
activities. After you download the newsgroup overview, simply use the
Queue Articles window to select the files you want to download. Then,
the next time you click the Start button, Baker will automatically begin
downloading the files.

Baker 1.1 is a free upgrade to current owners.

Unregistered versions of the $35 program are fully functional but will
occasionally display reminders to register.

Subject: [*] CDFinder 3.5 for Mac OS X

CDFinder is a very fast and powerful tool to catalog your hard
disks, CD-ROMs, DVDs, floppies, ZIPs and anything else that spins.
It has a great user interface and very useful search functions.
CDFinder supports drag&drop and requires a PowerPC CPU.
While System 8.5 is required, CDFinder is also fully compatible to
MacOS 9.1 and Mac OS X.
A special feature is the multi-lingual user interface
(German/French/English/Italian/Swedish/Chinese).

Together with CDWinder 1.5 for Windows,
this is a special cross platform, network solution to catalog disks
and CD-ROMs on a Macintosh and a PC.

The new version can be obtained from the CDFinder home page
.

A single user license of CDFinder is $25, multi user licenses are available.

New in CDFinder 3.5 ("The Audio Edition"):

- Catalogs Audio-CDs using the Internet database freedb.org.

- Reads MP3 file info (MP3-Tags, and compression info).

- Apples iPod is supported: CDFinder catalogs the hidden MP3 songs
located in the device.

- Mac OS X 10.1 support has been improved: The interface blends much
better into Aqua, the Help menu is back.

- CDFinder now reads the long filenames of HFS+, not only running in
Mac OS X, but also in Mac OS 9.0 or newer!

- New parameters improve the already extensive Find function.

- The comment fields now hold up to 32,000 characters of text,
previous versions could only use up to 255 chars.

- And much more!

This version requires Mac OS X

Subject: [*] DatedFolder.script 2.6

This is an update to DatedFolder.script 2.5.

The DatedFolder.script package contains both a run-only AppleScript Applet
and a compiled script that do the same thing: create a new folder in a
user-defineable location and then set the name of the new folder to the
current day's date.

Version 2.6 corrects a *major* embarrassing bug that resulted in the
inability to select a non-Desktop location to create the DatedFolder. Many
thanks to George Spiese for pointing out the error.

Requires the following scripting additions (osaxen): Akua Sweets 1.43, Jon's
Commands 2.2.1, and Standard Additions (Mac OS 9.2.1).

Regards,

Matthew W. Schmeer

FileGrabber 1.0.2
Release Date 11/27/01

FileGrabber downloads sequentially numbered files from a Web server (HTTP or
FTP).

If you've surfed through image archives looking at pictures, you may have
noticed that the URLs of the actual pictures sometimes vary very little. In
fact, images on a server are frequently in a series (vacation001.jpg,
vacation002.jpg, and so on). FileGrabber is a utility that will let you
enter URL information and a range, and will then download all of the files
for you with only one click. FileGrabber can also create custom HTML pages
for easy viewing of downloaded pictures.

FileGrabber is shareware ($8.00 US)

Subject: [*] Folder Lister 1.1

Folder Lister 1.1

History:
29 November 2001 - version 1.1 added prefs for including types and sizes

Abstract:
Drop a folder on Folder Lister's desktop icon. It produces a text file on
your desktop containing a formatted, recursive list of the files and folder=
s
within the folder selected.

Invisible files and folders are clearly labelled. Files are listed with
their creator/file types and size. File names with trailing return
characters (such as "Icon\r") are marked with "=AC".

Apologia: This is one of the first programs anyone who learns the Mac
toolbox will write. I've written it myself at least three times, over the
years, counting this one. Now that the "Classic" environment is dying out
(slooooowly...) I just wanted to have it around, in my bag of tricks.

I don't actually USE it often, but when I do, it's probably either to create
an inventory of files, or to search for odd stuff hiding on my system (like
Internet Explorer's invisible "Date Preferences", as in how kinky you prefer
your internet content, not whether you want DAY-MONTH-YEAR dates).

Folder Lister can list about 25,000 files & folders (4 Gb) in about 90
seconds, on this iBook 2000 at least.

Requires PowerPC, Macintosh OS 7.5 or better, OS 9.2.1 recommended.
Freeware. Absolutely no support. No warranty express or implied. IT'S
FREEWARE.

Folder Flattener Lite 1.1

Copyright =A9 2001 by Tannhauser Gate & C-beams, Ltd. Freeware.

Drop a folder on the desktop icon. Folder Flattener Lite will compress and
encipher your folder and all files and subfolders within, creating a backup
file suitable for uploading to Internet storage servers. Double-clicking
the .=FEat file will restore the entire folder to the location you select.
Does not delete sources unless the Option key is depressed (normally, a
pretty cheerful key.) Small, stable, fast, secure.

Requires PowerPC, Macintosh OS 7.5 up to 9.2.1. I have not tested in the
Mac OS X "Classic" environment yet.

Freeware. Some assembly required (your codebook, see below). Absolutely no
support. If you lose track of your codebook, or if it is damaged, your .at
files will be beyond my resources to restore.

History:

v1.1 - 6 Dec 2001, allow Folder Flattener to delete original files if Optio=
n
key is held down; also, a cosmetic bug fix. Unencrypted the Ciph.at
archive (sorry).

v1.0 - 2 Dec 2001, first release

Discussion:

Compression by zlib 1.1.3. 'Nuff said.

By default, the codebook option is turned off. If you turn it on:

You will need to select a codebook, instead of a password. Any large
compressed file greater than 5 Mb in size will do. You may put an alias to
your codebook in Folder Flattener's own folder, eliminating the need for
further attention.

Encryption is provided by an elementary stream cipher which is difficult for
me to assess with any degree of confidence. Because of the large state
space, balanced by the unsophisticated 1-byte encryption (this is the entire
bitsmear algorithm: XOR), I think the cipher may be about as secure as DES,
if that. It's a bit more than kid sister proof, certainly.

In any case, Folder Flattener Lite does NOT incorporate or use strong
encryption code such as Rijndael, Serpent or TwoFish. The full version of
Folder Flattener DOES incorporate Brian Gladman's Rijndael code, but after
the events of 9/11, there is no way I could justify releasing a tool that
sharp-edged. Source for the stream cipher is included.

Subject: [*] Holiday Lights 5.2

This is the English version of the shareware Holiday Lights screen saver
and desktop application for Macintosh.

Holiday Lights places flashing light bulbs around the edge of your
screen, as though a (well-insulated) elf crawled into your computer
through the disk drive slot and stapled them there. The lights can
optionally flash in the background while you continue to work, so it's
not just a screen saver.

The "bulbs" include standard Christmas tree lights, Valentine's Day
hearts, Thanksgiving turkeys, chili peppers, shamrocks, stockings, holly,
snowmen, happy faces, and more - and you can create your own bulbs using
ResEdit or a similar program.

For even more seasonal joy, Holiday Lights includes cheery background
music as well as a variety of built-in festive screen savers to put you
in the holiday spirit.

Holiday Lights is an application, not a system extension, so it won't
cause extension conflicts. It is compatible with System 7.0 or later,
including Mac OS 8 and Mac OS 9.

Version 5.2 adds an "Old Glory" bulb that looks like a US flag.

IE Cache Trasher 1.0
Pineapple Software
IE Cache Trasher deletes a file called "download cache" which can get quite big if you do not watch it. This file stores incomplete and complete downloads (the latter only if you set IE to remember your last completed downloads). It can grow to enormous proportions; mine was 119 MB the first time I checked!
What s New?
IE Cache Trasher has been known in the past as IE Download Cache Cleaner, an earlier version with fewer options.
In this version, it not only deletes the download cache, but also displays a dialog telling you that the download cache isn t present if it isn t in its regular place!
Requirements
Internet Explorer (IE) 5.0
Apple Script, newest vesion preferably
A Macintosh
Installation
Put IE Cache Trasher wherever you want, and run it from anywhere you want. It has no requirements for where it must be.
Cost:
Absolutely nothing! Freeware lives on!

with, users can begin to use this program in no time at all.

NetFinder v1.x started the FTP client war, by being the first FTP client to:
- support resume downloading after you quit or crash.
- add drag and drop support for all operations including moving files from
one folder to another, server to server coping as well as the standard
uploading, downloading and trashing...
- inline filename editing, just like the Finder.
- integrated BBEdit support for transparent file editing.
- support for setting permissions on files and folders (even recursively).

The Finder-like listing window supports viewing by name, date, size, and
permissions. Other features include automatic binhex, macbinary and text
translation for uploads and downloads. Supports many ftp servers.
Has speech support. Internet Config savvy. Supports bookmark lists.

NetFinder 2.x included:

* Full MacOS 8.x appearance, including Contextual Menus and Navigation
Manager.
* Support for HTTP protocol. Allowing users to browse lists of files on
sites that do not support FTP. (Also supports HTTP proxies and proxies
that require authentication)
* Support for downloading and resume downloading of files using HTTP.
* Added and improved various security protocols used with FTP including:
- One Time Passwords (Clear Text, Challenge and s/key)
- Support for FTP proxies that require authentication.
- Improved SOCKS support. Even works with MS Proxy 2.0.
* Support for Queued Downloads.
* Vastly improved directory caching, so its just like your web browser.
* URL/Hostname auto-completion. Saves you typing in a complete hostname.
* MacBinary III support.
* Support for Apple's KeyChain Manager, for secure password storage.
* View Graphic window, view remote files with a click of a button.

NetFinder requires System 7.6 or higher, Open Transport, and is US$35 shareware.

Subject: Can StuffIt Expander NOT open in foreground?

Whenever I download an archive which StuffIt Expander (any version,
though mine is currently 6.5.1) post-processes, the
decoding/expansion is done in the foreground. Is there any way to
have this function as a background process? I'd like to avoid being
interrupted by Expander's coming to the fore...

Subject: Netscape 6 woes

Hi.

I "upgraded" from Netscape 4.x to Netscape 6, and I'm less than thrilled
with the results. I've also tried the latest Mozilla; ditto.

I would like to downgrade again. The problem is that my user profile is
now a Netscape 6 profile. I would like to translate it back into a
Netscape 4 profile. Does anybody know how to do this?

Alternatively, is there some way to have Eudora or Outlook Express
(etc.) import a Netscape 6 mail setup? to have Internet Explorer or
Opera (etc.) import Netscape 6 bookmarks, cookies, and the like?

Thanks.

Subject: remove Info-Mac aliases from Eudora mailboxes

Whenever I open an Info-Mac digest attachment within Eudora 5.1, an
alias to the digest mailbox is created at the root level of my
mailboxes. I'd like to prevent the generation of the alias or
automate the removal of them. Any ideas?

Note: I'd prefer to continue to "receive MIME digests as attachments".
